    Default Yao Guo Jiding (Cashew Chicken) or Gong Bao Jiding (Peanut Chicken)

    Yao Guo Jiding (Cashew Chicken)
    Gong Bao Jiding (Peanut Chicken)

    This recipe was given to me by a friend of mine who lives in China!

    A - Marinade:
    2 tsp soy sauce
    2 tsp red wine or cooking wine
    1 tsp corn starch
    1/4 tsp salt
    1 lb chicken, diced

    B - 1/2 cup cashews (or peanuts)
    3 Tbs oil

    C - 1 carrot, diced
    1 red pepper, diced

    D - 2-3 dried chiles, cut into small pieces
    2-3 cloves garlic, minced
    a little sliced ginger

    E - 3 scallions, diced

    Marinate chicken in the "A" ingredients for at least 1/2 hour. Stir fry the nuts in hot oil for several minutes, until lightly browned, then remove from oil. Stir fry carrots in the oil for about 5 minutes, until tender, then remove them from the skillet. Stir fry the "D" ingredients for 20-30 seconds to release their aroma. Then, add chicken & stir fry for several more minutes, until chicken is brown & cooked through. Add all other (cooked & raw) ingredients. Stir fry another minute, then serve.

    For an "authentic chinese meal," this really doesn't have many ingredients that you wouldn't normally find in the pantry or fridge.
